Fall is here and the weather is beautiful here at the beach. There are less people in town but were still bringing the love. I have been posting a lot of picture on instagram and here are some of my favorite ones. Plus a picture of my arm!

I have been a bad blogger lately in pursuit of being the best chef/restaurateur that I can be. Now that the pace has changed I will post more often. Thanks for your continued support! Tell a friend about The Comb & Wattle. I will be posting more photos, recipes and featuring farmers and foragers in future post. If you want me to cover a story I am very open to suggestions. Cheers! Enjoy!

Autumn FUN!

I love the fall, especially when I have the beach all to myself. I love the changing leaves, crisp nights, and all of the GREAT produce! So many seasonal favorites to enjoy like warm apple cider and the pumpkin pie. OH, the pumpkin pie! I’m back from my blogging hiatus. Summer was great and business exceeded my expectations. The warm months flew by.

Last weekend The Celebrity Chefs Beach Brunch to benefit Meals On Wheels Of Delaware was held and was very successful. Thank you to all the Chef’s and all of the great people who made it happen. That event will provide very many meals to home bound seniors through out the state of Delaware.

This Sunday Slow Food Delmarva and TS Smith and Sons are joining together to hold an apple picking event from 1-3 at their orchard in Bridgeville, Delaware. Bring a picnic basket because there will be lots of family fun including Sprouting Chef’s very own Katie Freer teaching the kids. There also will be face painting, hay rides, and great deals on all of the apples that you pick. Come enjoy a fall day and join us in our fight for Good, Clean, and Fair food for all!

(The Awesome People Who Help to Make This Great Event Happen)




This year I have been asked to be on the committee for one of my favorite charity events The Celebrity Beach Brunch. I am very honored to be asked to work with such dedicated people for this great cause benefiting Meals On Wheels throughout the state of Delaware. I am full of energy and ideas to help make this years event the best that it can be and raise as much money as possible for the folks who need it the most.



As the planning stages continue I will share my experiences and cover the people making it happen to help spread the word for this noble cause. This morning the committee met at Fish-On in Lewes. I knew some of the committee and got a chance to meet some new friendly faces. I know with such diligent volunteers this event will be one to remember.
